Years ago I ate a refreshing summer salad at a local pizza restaurant. We have long since moved away, but the salad is one that I love to recreate during the summer when watermelon is in season.
The salad was served with a balsamic vinaigrette, but any light salad dressing would be excellent on top. I like it with strawberry vinaigrette, lemon poppy seed, or my lemon vinaigrette.
I prefer to use goat cheese in the salad, but the day that I made it, we were out so I subbed out mozzarella cheese. I think the salad is better with a mild cheese.
I hope that you’ll try this delicious summer salad today and leave a comment below. Also, please follow @lifeabovethecafe on Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook by using the social media icons found on this page.
Wash and prep all vegetables. Dice the watermelon into bite sized pieces.
Layer the spinach or mixed field greens with the blueberries, watermelon, candied pecans, and cheese.
Drizzle a mild vinaigrette over the salad.
